Marcie - One more thing I failed to answer in your last query. Rube's mother was the Indian child that was taken in by the Rice family. She was found by a couple men from Farmington up in Montana, crying in her mothers arms after an Indian massacre by the US militia. They brought her home and asked the Rices if they would raise her and they traded a donkey? for her. Rices raised her as their own. Many thought Ida Ann Rice Wilcox was my fathers mother because he had dark skin and hair and was known as The Big Indian even though we had no indian blood. Does this clarify who Ruben was? or confuse you more? Jonathan and Annie did not take in other Indian children; some of their descendants have the gorgeous Indian looks. The tribe came down every year looking for her per information at the huge reunion last year! Looking forward to hearing from you directly - Charlynn
